Trumpet playing robot! "Toyota developed artificial lips that move with the same finesse as human lips, which, together with robots' hands, enables the robots to play trumpets like humans do."
Looks like Korea has their own security robot to compete with Japan's. Also found another in Japan called the Wakamaru. It's designed to help out the ill or the elderly: it can be programmed to remind patients to take their medicine and even call a doctor when it appears that someone is in distress.
